“If not for ‘The Silver Chair’ and ‘The Last Battle,’ I’d be sure this was my favorite of all the Narnia books. A vast sea of lilies stretching to the horizon… invisible hopping monopods... This book is a golden treasury of unforgettable images, and the passage of noble Reepicheep rowing his coracle over the frozen wave into Aslan’s world is profound and poignant and sublime.”
About the Book

A beautiful paperback edition of The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, book five in the classic fantasy series, The Chronicles of Narnia, featuring cover art by three time Caldecott Medal-winning artist David Wiesner and black-and-white interior illustrations by the original illustrator, Pauline Baynes.

The Voyage of the Dawn Treader is the fifth book in C. S. Lewis’s classic fantasy series, a series that has been drawing readers of all ages into a magical land with unforgettable characters for over sixty years.
